• Chris + Katie | Part I

…experienced you are, if you’re a photographer and another photographer asks you to shoot his/her wedding, you get a little nervous.  What an honor!  Chris called me last fall and asked if I would shoot their wedding and of course I was thrilled! ….. but nervous. Chris and I met years ago when Michael and I were visiting friends at Clemson. One of our groomsmen in our wedding was roommates with Chris and so Chris and I had several opportunities to talk camera talk and all that nerdy stuff. The funny thing is that I specifically remember Chris asking me if I had every considered doing photography professionally…and my response was… wait for it… “Uh…No, I don’ t really enjoy shooting people”.

Yep, that’s what I said and now I am shooting his wedding! Man things change! Wow.  I reminded him of that conversation the morning of his wedding as we walked around and looked at some portrait location options.  Little did we know that it was going to rain… all day. HOWEVER, I always tell clients that some of my BEST weddings were shot on dreary, rainy days and that was so true this past weekend! There are not enough exclamation marks to describe how much I loved this wedding and this couple!! Chris and Katie are such a fabulous couple with huge hearts and sweet spirits. Capturing their day was such a joy and I loved every minute of it! … Rain and all! I have too many favorites and so I just have to do a Part I and Part II!


The day started off with a bridal brunch downtown at the cutest little restaurant!

Too many flower shots? I don’t care… I can’t choose anymore! It’s harder than it seems!

Chris and Katie were married at the Hyatt Regency of Greenville and the theme was “Old Hollywood”! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Love! Katie you are beyond beautiful, girl!

Ah!!! Favorite!

Warning: I’m posting a million shots from their “First Look” because it was beautiful and romantic and pretty much AMAZING. Every couple should consider doing one… not just because of the amazing shots you get, but because of the experience.  This moment that they shared, they will NEVER forget. It was “their time” to be together on their wedding day and that is priceless!

He was speechless…..literally. It is in these moments that I realize how beautiful my job is…. capturing this makes me so so happy!!

All of these were taken within a span of 2-3 minutes. Isn’t that incredible? You don’t get shots like this when you meet at the end of the isle!

Oh sweet goodness!

Another favorite! They are so so natural in front of the camera! My job was so easy!

Ohhh yea…. did I mention I borrowed Chris’s 85mm to shoot with?…. and I loved it…and I became obsessed with it…. and I came home and bought one!!? I even paid for 2 day shipping because I don’t even want to shoot another wedding without it! It’s dramatic, I know… but if you are a photographer, you would understand.

If you liked Part I….you’ll LOVE Part II!! Let me know what ya’ think! (and if you think I blog too many images… I already know that, I’m working on it!)
